Do you feel called to lead a faith and fitness small group?
Or has God put someone on your heart to walk out a journey of faith and fitness together?
Accountability and community make all the difference when you're working toward your fitness goals.
On today's show, Lisa Vasseur Jarvis and I share how to start your own faith and fitness community, the importance of faith in your food, fitness, confidence and how accountability in Christ changes everything.
My guest, Lisa, is a Proud Mom, Christ Follower, Fitness Instructor and Healthy Food Blogger.
We cover these topics and so much more…
Getting fit and staying fit is already hard, but when you couple that with: aging, hormones, dissatisfaction with your appearance, depression and feeling like you don’t have a purpose, it can feel impossible.
1. How she felt God calling her to teach faith in her fitness class and how she did it using Faith Inspired Transformation.
2. The feedback she’s getting, and the overwhelming difference Jesus makes.
3. The advice she has for someone wanting to start a small group.
Like having the courage to share Jesus in a place many people don't know He cares about.
How rewarding it is.
How God is calling us to His perfect plan (at any age or stage, God's not done with us...if we're still here He has work for us to do, and we need to be healthy and fit to do it – mind and body).
Our Prayer for you...
We pray that every woman listening knows how incredibly valuable she is to you and that she can come to you with every detail of her life – including the struggle to lose weight, get fit and feel confident.
Touch her heart and help her know she’s not alone.
Comfort, lead and guide her, give her wisdom and the ability to be strong even when she feels weak, so she can confidently walk in the purpose you’ve given her.
Help her see herself through your eyes and live with Holy spirit boldness.
We are so grateful to you God.
In Jesus' name, amen.
> Has God spoken to you about teaching fitness through faith or about approaching someone to become your fitness accountability partner?
Who has He placed on your heart?
Will you reach out to them today, or even take a big faith-filled step toward starting your own faith and fitness small group?
If so, I’ve created a resource (the same book Lisa used in her group) to help you do that. Learn all about it here, Faith Inspired Transformation.
I want you to take the first step, because nothing happens without action.

You’re not alone on your journey to fit.
